We put Avalon in the jumparoo for this first time this month, she loves it & will actually stay in it for a good twenty minutes, which is a really big deal for us! She also still loves the bumbo, but seems to be over the bouncer and gets pretty bored of it within a couple minutes. I think she will be an early sitter & will be one happy girl when she can, laying down flat has just never been her thing. By far, her favorite place to be is held, she is definitely our snuggler and prefers touch over anything else. She also found her hands a few weeks ago & hasn’t turned back since. This is all new territory for us, Waverly never really cared about sucking her fingers or even putting toys to her mouth, but if Avalon is awake, there is something near those little lips. And she is drooling. Like crazy! Like five outfits a day because everything is soaking wet crazy.
Sleep has been all over the place lately, we aren’t sure if it’s the four month sleep regression (my husband does not believe in those regressions, but I am always googling them! Tell me someone else is going through this and there is a reason, haha!), or just a random phase. Either way, it’s definitely been challenging. Naps over an hour are pretty much non-existent, some days the only real sleep she sees is the time in her car seat on the way to & from an errand. She LOVES to be on the boob and would sit and comfort nurse all day if I let her, so I think she is chalking that up to her nap time. 🙂 That’s obviously not realistic so we are really trying to work through it, the good news is that even without sleep, she is such a happy baby. She smiles all day long, to anyone really, and is just the absolute sweetest little thing.
Avalon’s four month appointment is next week, so I don’t know her height or weight right now, yet my guess is she is still small! We are still primarily in 0-3 month clothes, and even a lot of those are big on her. When we are out, almost everyone comments on how small she is, but we love that about her because she can stay our little baby for longer (and her clothes can last longer, too!). She still looks so much like Waverly did, it’s really so amazing to look back on pictures. I will have to share a comparison post soon!
Avalon Elle, we just adore everything about you and are so thankful that you are ours. Keep on being you, we just can’t get enough!
Hoping you are having a wonderful week!
